Lynching & Anti-LGBT Violence: Making the Connection

This event is sponsored by the African American & Black Diaspora Studies Program. Hear from Dr. Koritha Mitchell on her examination of the data on anti-LGBT attacks collected by the NCAVP. The violence plaguing LGBT communities has much in common with the brutal practice of lynching, which was at its height from the 1890s through the 1930s. Ultimately, both forms of aggression deny targeted groups recognition as citizens. Having devoted decades to studying racial violence, Dr. Koritha Mitchell brings this expertise to her examination of the data on anti-LGBT attacks collected by the National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs (NCAVP). Her research equips audiences to make their environments less hostile for more people.
